Do sender and receiver both need some balance in wallet?

When i am trying to make a transaction in a wallet that is empty, it is showing me an error that the receiver wallet doesn’t have any balance.


All accounts on the Algorand blockchain needs to maintain a minimum balance. ( I think that the current minimum balance is 0.001 Algos, but I could be wrong ).
If you could provide the exact error you’ve received, we’ll be happy to explain it in details.

The minimum balance is 100,000 microAlgos (0.1 Algos). You can read more about accounts and the minimum balance requirement here:

So if you try to send a new account less than 0.1 Algos it will fail. If you are sending at least that amount and still getting an error, please share more details as Tsachi suggested! Thanks.
